Endorse This: Cheers To This Fox News Host

In response to the storm of right-wing media demagoguery raging against Syrian refugees, coming especially from Fox News, there was also a truly eloquent rebuttal from none other than Fox News’ own anchorman: Shepard Smith.

“We The People have a responsibility now, to protect that which we hold dear,” Smith said, challenging his viewers. “In the face of terror, will we panic, or be calm and deliberative in approach? Confronted with those who want to change our way of life, will we abandon our freedoms, and the rights granted to us by the Creator?

“Or will we welcome huddled masses, yearning to breathe free?”

Smith also made very clear the sort of person he was singling out for scorn: “We cannot resort to the tactics of the barbarians. We must fight for what we believe in, and who we are — guard our freedoms faithfully, for the generations to follow. And we must not let the rhetoric of potential and political extremists among us, lead us to self-destruction.”

Mike Johnson (R-LA), using the Motion to Vacate she filed last month. She told Fox viewers she wanted to return to her House district to “listen to voters” before acting, however.

Trump Campaign Gives Access To Far-Right Media But Shuns Mainstream Press

Trump campaign press pass brandished on air by QAnon podcaster Brenden Dilley

Trump's Hour On CNN Was A Profile In Cowardice

Vanity Fair recently reported that several journalists from mainstream publications, including The Washington Post, NBC News, Axios, and Vanity Fair, were denied press access to Trump’s campaign events, seemingly in retaliation for their previous critical coverage. Meanwhile, Media Matters found that the campaign has granted press credentials to the QAnon-promoting MG Show and Brenden Dilley, a podcaster who has promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory and leads a “meme team” that creates pro-Trump content.
